Wedding Ceremonies

Do you have an idea about what your wedding ceremony will feel like? GREAT, and if not, I have tonnes of ideas which we can explore.

You’ve probably gathered by now that I have a fun, relaxed and truly modern style but still love and respect the elegance, traditions and romance of the occasion.

So, I don’t do…. ‘groundhog day’ or ‘boring’.

I do… arrive with tonnes of inspiration and we create the magic as we go, authentic, real and full of personality. This is one of the most precious and special days in your life, your ceremony will have moments of light and shade, love, laughter, tears of joy and really reflect you both. We can create a ceremony to capture the essence of your relationship and your love to create a memory to be treasured and cherished always and have a lot of fun and laughter along the way.

I am a full time Celebrant and I LOVE what I do! So my time is dedicated to my couples. Every couple is different in every way, sometimes a ceremony can be planned and fabulous in two meetings and sometimes more, we will tweak it until it’s ‘perfect’!

If you are a ‘destination’ bride and groom planning the ceremony from afar, we can meet online and communicate by phone and email, this works really well and I have all the best contacts to share to make your day a breeze.

On your wedding day, I do….. arrive approximately 45 minutes prior to the planned ‘walk down the aisle’ time… I love to welcome your family and friends and make sure everything is perfect. Regardless of how many guests, whether you have 10 or 310, I will make sure that they are relaxed and all ready for your arrival and I do….. enjoy the congratulations afterwards, I’m happy to coordinate the group photo and won’t be moving my equipment until the guests have really dispersed.

Equipment available for all wedding ceremonies

Wedding Ceremonies


This is an option for those who would like to be married with intimacy...


Have you been together forever and just want to make it legal...


Ok, so legally you can’t ‘surprise’ your partner with a wedding ceremony...

Elopement Wedding Ceremony

This is an option for those who would like to be married with intimacy.
You’ll need to complete your NOIM at least one month prior to the wedding date and need a minimum 2 witnesses over 18, the two of you and me.
We can meet under the Casuarina trees at Mooloolaba Cove at sunset, take a catamaran sunrise cruise, gather in your own garden or the place you had your first date. Nothing too ceremonial, but something really special.

I love intimate elopements, just the three of us and the witnesses, we choose a beautiful spot and ‘marry away’! This can be one of the most special and precious occasions of your life, elopements can be emotional, wonderful and memorable.
